Check out one of the most rewarding outdoor activities in Stowe this summer.
When you think of ‘dogsledding’, we are sure that a wintery landscape is the first thing that comes to mind. Yet a version of this pursuit is one of the top outdoor activities in Stowe all year round! When the snow melts, the ‘sleds’ are put away as it is now the time for dog carting in Stowe. With all of the natural beauty of Stowe, Vermont surrounding you, this all-weather activity is a can’t-miss diversion any day of the year!
There are a few different outfitters that provide summer dog carting in Stowe. While it is more popular of an activity in the fall, when the foliage is at peak ‘leaf-peeping’ stage, summertime in Stowe is just as beautiful. The basics of Stowe dog carting are similar across all providers. This exciting adventure is a guided tour through wooded trails, many that were designed just for dogsledding. There will also be stops along the way to give your beautiful canines a break, while also giving you a chance to get to know both them and your human tour guides a little better. The average tour will last around two hours but can be extended depending on the heat. Weather in Vermont in the summer is unpredictable, ensuring every tour is a unique experience.
This summer in Stowe, local favorite Peace Pups Dogsledding is not offering dog carting services but still has a variety of other tours and kennels visits for you to explore as you wait until fall. Umiak Outdoor Outfitters is offering tours twice-a-day, seven-days-a-week all summer long.
